Contrasting Expressions: Seasonal Colors Mix Bold with Traditional This Fall

Styled by Madelyn Jones | Photos by L.G. Patterson

The colors of fall evoke images of autumn oranges and browns, deep reds and purples, and all the tones you’d expect to see when the leaves change.

But when it comes to fashion, the colors of fall get much more expansive.

Each season, the Pantone Color Institute, a trend forecasting and color consultancy, reports the top standout colors and core classics that will be used in fashion designers’ autumn/winter collections. This season, the color palette features “contrasting colors that bring together our co-existing desires for rest and relaxation with exuberant expression,” mixing bold, vibrant colors with the more traditional autumn shades.

With the help of our model, Jennifer Cope, we highlighted just a few of those chosen seasonal colors with some wardrobe essentials perfect for the colder days and nights ahead.
